Siamese Community near my homestay

Siamese community is one of minority in Kelantan. Its about 2.3% population in this state. For me this community is unique because of the relationship between Malay people. Siamese and Malay is very close here and I heard if Malay people held wedding ceremony, they will come to that occasion and enjoy most of Malay festival.

This site can be one of the attraction at Desa Homestay. We have many potential attraction and the problems is this place not publish or inform to tourist centre or tourist egents.

Someone Visit My Homestay

This morning a researcher from Kuala Lumpur visited my homestay. Quite shocked when I get a phone call from her. She's came from Rantau Panjang. She doing research on tourism in Kelantan. I hope that the best chance for my homestay to be publish outside Kelantan and maybe to the world.

a chance tourists also can visit this site.

Budha Temple is located in Kampung Lubuk Batil which is Siamese community and very close with Malay society. I am very excited to hear when Malay and Siamese stay together and how important the national integration. Wow..amazing!
